It has always been a dream of mine to run the Boston Marathon and today I am honored and excited to be running with a woderful group of people from Nantucket for a great cause, The Spaulding Rehabilitation Center. My journey with Spaulding started when I met a woman on Nantucket. I had actually heard about her many months before I met her, she had been hit by a drunk driver while riding her bike on the island. She was treated for life threatening injuries at Spaulding and with her strength and the strength of her family by her side, she made a full recovery and was able to return home. That is when I met Robin Harvey, working at her family restaurant, The SeaGrille. It was there I learned about her, her injuries, about Spaulding and about the effect she had on this small island community. It wasn't long before Robin wanted to see her dream of running the Boston marathon become a reality and in less than 2 years from her accident, she did!
Robin's recovery and running of the Boston marathon was very special to be a part of, not only for her family and myself, but the entire community of Nantucket. Robin was very active in the community and a person that knew everyone and everyone knew. I really admired her.
On February 1st, 2015 the Patriots were about to face off againts the Seahawks in the Superbowl, it was then I received a call saying Robin was out running and had been hit by a car and killed. She is dearly missed and remembered often. Island Grace.
It is for Her and Spaulding that I am running the 2017 Boston Marathon..
